How much I appreciate all his time and work on our family genealogy. He cared so much that it stay alive for future generations, telling story after story of loved ones from the past, sharing photos and articles of interest with us. May he rest in peace, this wonderful person who loved country and family and God. We will miss him even though we only really got to know him in recent years.
